Would somone please inform me of the differences between Adobe Photoshop and Corel Paint Shop Pro 9? I'm back in school now and a senir in high school, and I'm taking what they call "Computers 4," which is basically a website design class. Anyway, I just noticed a friend playing around with Photoshop I believe it was. (I want to learn all this so I can make textures for models.(THE 3D KIND:D) (couldn't resist)). Anyway, I go look them up online, and what-do-you-know, Corel Paint Shop Pro is ~$70, while Photoshop is ~$600!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm assuming this means some vast capability differences, so if anyone could inform me on these two, it would be much appreciated....thanks!!!!

Jasc Paint Shop is a cheaper version of PhotoShop. PhotoShop CS can run for a $1000 USD and more, while Paint Shop Pro 9 ran retail at about $100 USD and can occassionally be bought at Best Buy for down to $30 USD after mail in rebates and discounts and such.

Photo Shop and Paint Shop are rather comparable programs. Paint Shop has brushes but far fewer than Photo Shop, and certain aspects such as "tweening," rendering, and multilayered animation are not present in Pain Shop. Paint Shop, on the other hand, tends to have some better tools such as a VASTLY improved background eraser over the bad Paint Shop version of the tool, a useful Lighten/Darken tool in addition to the burn/dodge, and a much better color changing system for photo manipulation. You can animate in Paint Shop using Animation Shop, and in PhotoShop using Image Ready.

I have Paint Shop as I need more money, but I use PhotoShop at school for my classes (computer graphic design, etc.), so I know they are both very good, but they have their differences, depends on what you're looking for ;)
